The golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

I spent 5000NT so you don’t have to turn away. Do me the courtesy to spend at least half of that :smiley: :rofl:

Does anyone have any experience with patching up jackets after crashes or just…patching up holes in jackets?

I’m reluctant to wear the jacket that I crashed with because I’m concerned that the wind going through it will make the hole bigger.

No difference to patching up normal clothes, but to avoid further tear I would use a patch instead of just sewing it close with thread.

No experience in shops that do it for you, and I certainly am not proficient in that stuff.

Jackets OK. Patching lycra, especially shorts: not such a good idea.

Over-sewing as a means of reinforcing seams on shorts, when the overlock begins to fray: also cool. Use a wide loose zig-zag and a polyester (not cotton) thread).

Thanks @urodacus

I’ve actually found an ah-yi over in Taoyuan that does repair work on cycling apparel. I would rather have someone with experience do it then screw around with a 3000NT+ jacket.

I haven’t had the time to get a quote, but I will report back here when I do!
